The Princess Bride is one of my favourite movies of all times. It's one of the sweetest, most romantic and wittiest movies ever made. And despite it being released close to twenty years ago in 1987, it doesn't show its age. Not for one iota.

Because of the uniqueness of the script, The Princess Bride makes for one mighty fine movie to play a drinking game (the advanced version can be found here). So that's what we did last night at a friend's place, after having some delicious spaghetti bolognese, crackers and pate, garlic bread with cheese and a Mediterranean salad (courtesy of yours truly - it's very hard to mess up a salad).

And because I've seen the movie five times, I was incredibly enthusiastic, yelling "drink!" whenever one of the drink phrases occurred. The thing with this movie though, is that the cues aren't spread evenly. Instead, they're all bunched together in some parts (especially with the iocane powder, Queen Buttercup and miracle worker scenes). It's a good thing we were drinking wine instead of hard liquor, because otherwise, we'd all have been roaring drunk within the first ten minutes of the movie, since the cues occurred at least twenty times. I was certainly Princess Bride-d by the end of the movie, despite having run out of alcohol 25 minutes before the end.

Much to my - and someone else's - pleasant surprise, the red wine I drank didn't give me a raging headache, and instead provided me with the impetus to drag a certain someone off to a secluded area and... let's just say, be someone very unlike me.

After that, we hopped over to Zouk because I was dying to test out my recently acquired Zouk membership (YAY!!!!) and as it turned out, it worked perfectly. I'm so happy. Finally, I've been recognised.
